An extremely dangerous man or just a harmless socialite in a glowing atomic suit?

Señor Misterioso: who is he, why is he here? And who trims his mustache? Is he an interstellar voyager, world traveler, or something of a swinging socialite? He may appreciate art, yet he is disdainful of music. His activities have been tracked; his friends, companions, ideals and literarary leanings noted. His words are few, but his stories are many. He is no one, yet he is everywhere.

And in addition, he remains in his original packaging in my own basement. Truly, his powers of omnipresence are astounding. Or perhaps he only returns there to recharge his glow and rest before the next great adventure.

No office is complete without him!

There he is, lurking behind the PEZ dispensers. In the original packaging here too.

I took mine out of the packaging...but it was worth it so that I can leave him hidden in various places around the house.

Is this a model of the most interesting man in the world?

I have it on good authority that he is hanging with Harry Houdini and a pair of wind up lederhosen on my husband's desk. Whatever they're planning can't be good.

I don't know, I like CONANDO better.

Whenever I drive past Pizza Patrón I think of Señor Misterioso.

adamms222, the first appearance of the good Señor precludes the current career of Jonathan Goldsmith by some 10 years. And Jonathan has a beard, where the good Señor has none, but is always adorned in a glowing suit.

Is this something I'd have to glow in the dark to understand?

Yes, but imagine the looks of admiration you would get as you walked down the aisle in a darkened movie theatre after you stuck Señor Misterioso up your arse.

Peculiarly charming? Charmingly peculiar? Can't decide. :)

I'd like to see a throwdown between Señor Misterioso and El Fisico Nuclear

I once placed Señor Misterioso in my tropical reef aquarium for a week. When I took him out, his white suit had turned into a black tuxedo (this is a true story.)
